Book Video Teasers are exciting video announcements, available exclusively through Outskirts Press, for the purposes of announcing the publication of your new book and getting your social and video networking efforts off to a flashy start!
A Book Video Teaser is different from the more common, and longer, Book Videos you may have started to see popping up all over the Internet. Outskirts Press offers both Book Video Teasers and Book Video Trailers as options for authors, regardless of where your book was published.
Book Video Teasers are approximately 30-seconds long--fast and flashy--featuring the book cover, the author photo (if supplied), and availability.

Pretty cool, right? Believe it or not, one of our competitors charges over one thousand dollars (!) for a similar 30-second book video teaser... You will always get the best value at Outskirts Press.
With the popularity of sites like YouTube and MySpace, any author can create an account, a profile, and start uploading videos for the purposes of promotion. The trick becomes having something worth uploading. Producing professional looking videos is complicated, time-consuming, and difficult. That's where Book Video Trailers and Book Video Teasers direct from the publisher can really come in handy.
Your Book Video Teaser will be delivered to you as an .mp4 file via email (which requires Quick Time to view). Once you have the .mp4 Book Video Teaser file, you can start your viral video promotion. Here are the most popular video sharing sites:
- YouTube at www.youtube.com
- mySpace at www.myspace.com
- AOL Video at video.aol.com
- Google Video at video.google.com
- Daily Motion at www.dailymotion.com
- MetaCafe at www.metacafe.com

How it Works: The Book Video Teaser is a randomly generated 25-35 second video clip that features the following specific elements of your book: the title, the author byline, the cover, the author photo (if supplied), the retail price, and a specific and unalterable snippet of licensed music. The random nature of the creation process ensures that no two book video teasers are ever exactly the same. Book Video Teasers cannot be edited or recompiled once delivered without another Book Video Teaser purchase.
"I am beyond thrilled that I purchased the Book Teaser feature Outskirts Press offers for several reasons. The Book Teaser that was created for me, captured my heart. At the moment I saw this Teaser, I knew my dream ha been realized. Just the obeisance this Teaser created was surreal. I can not thank Outskirts Press enough for the Teaser that was created for me. It still touches my heart when I see it!."
- Linda K. Reed, author of Winter of 1950
